I think it certainly has issues, but it's something else :). This is
what happens with kern.hz=100:

interrupt                          total       rate
irq1: atkbd0                           2          0
irq6: fdc0                            10          0
irq8: rtc                          53803        127
irq13: npx0                            1          0
irq16: atapci0                     14751         35
irq21: rl0                          7180         17
irq24: fwohci0                         1          0
irq28: sym0                           30          0
irq29: sym1                           30          0
irq31: fxp0                         3236          7
irq0: clk                          21016         49
Total                             100060        237

In other words, exactly the same thing. I should also note that
earlier versions of 5-CURRENT worked correctly (-CURRENT from june 7).
Is there anything else I could try?

Thanks,

Arjan
